The easiest way to do it, is to unbolt the entire shaft down and take it inside to a vise, press or whatever you have, knock out the pins, and drive in the new ones. A 6 inch vise is a must , or bigger, and sockets for driving, and torches, and a press, If it is the back that is clicking, when you pull it down see if it is free to move, most likely it is not. But most people would replace both, front and rear at the same time, you could just get the parts and take the whole thing to a shop, let them press it together and take it back home and bolt it up, save you a lot of time and trouble. Be careful not to squish the shaft, it is soft. Hope this helps.

    Sorry I didn't get back sooner, Supposedly the caps are sealed on with some sort of hot melt stuff, you need a small torch to get them apart, and then when they go back, you tape the ends so the needles don't fall out and clamp it back on to the yoke, or whatever it is. According to some of the stuff I have read, some had the c clips, some have the 4 bolts, some have the clamps, I'm sure they are all different years, but that is why it gets confusing. If I had the truck in front of me, I could do it no problem, but I don't. What about the new parts, did you get hem yet and take a look at what you have to do to get it back together? Check it out.

The bolts holding the rear u-joint are out, how does the drive shaft come out?


STOP!!

Drive shaft need to be MARK before dis-assembly.

Drive shaft is a balance item. Just like your tire.

PLEASE make a lot of ID marking before taking it off the truck.

Look for C clip on the outside of the U joint. Some unit will c-clip tool to take apart.

Wobbling/vibration coming from back, steering wheel doesn't shake. I feel it in the seat. Got new tires and I still feel it. Had drive shaft checked, and mechanic said it was ok. Axle seals were leaking,...


Did the mechanic remove the rear driveshaft to check for a binding U-joint or just check for loose u-joints without removing the shaft. You need to remove the shaft to do a good check of the joints

CV JOINTS?


The CV joints are needed to transfer the torque at a constant speed to steered wheels as well as to accommodate up and down motions of the suspension.
You will find CV joints in all front-wheel drive cars. Many rear- and four-wheel drive cars and trucks have CV joints as well. The CV joint is packed with grease and protected by the rubber or plastic boot.
It does not require any maintenance and supposed to last very long provided that protective boot will not get damaged.

U-JOUNT ON CHEV 1500 2 WHEEL DRIVE CAN,NOT FIND ENEY C CLIPS INNER LOOKES LIKE THERE SOME TYPE OFROLLER PINS HOLDING THE JOUNIT IN???


GM uses injected plastic locks on OEM joints. After you drive the joint out, you can use the internal "c" clips supplied with the new joint and don't have to do anything further with the factory locks..

I would get a second opinion personally, I don't trust mechanics. I had the same problem with my K5 once and all it was, was my U joint.
